Can you use gloss paint on a radiator?
My Dad wants to use gloss on my radiator and I want to make sure you can use that paint - I know that there are special paints out there specifically for radiators - is this to do with being heat resistant and if this is the case is it dangerous to use anything else? Many thanks!

Yes, I have used ordinary gloss paint on a radiator, which I painted in the summer and it was OK. However, it did seem to go yellow more quickly and I have since used the special radiator paint which seems to give a more resilient finish. However. if you use this, be sure to paint in a well ventilated room because the fumes can be quite overpowering.
